Your view: Editorial agreement

Wednesday, February 4, 2004

I wholeheartedly agree with your thinking. It is becoming more and more apparent that the government still can't see the error of their ways. They give our money to those who are just too lazy to go help themselves. I have no problem helping or assisting those who are out trying to do something, even if it is picking up trash on the highway. At least they are doing something.

If someone is disabled or sick then they need the help too. If they are single-parent homes that need help, then help them. But if they are able to work and won't, then make them work or give them nothing. Some of these people have been on the free train all their lives and don't know any other way.

Some say, "What about the kids?" I am just as open-minded as the next but what are we teaching the new generation of kids? It is time to break that free generation cycle and force them to work. Give them help if they can prove they need it and tell the others, "If you don't work you don't get." Keep up the good word, sir.
